The Descent into Madness


The rage is boiling over and the forces of chaos are feeding deeply and reproducing.

Peaceful demonstrations are infiltrated by agent provocateurs.

Legitimate police forces are infiltrated by sadists.

Democratically elected politicians are infiltrated by fascists who seek "total domination."

The nation shudders as these infiltrations are displayed in a tableaux of escalating street violence.

CVS drugstore, Target and other other retailers close up shop as the agent provocateurs threaten their business, leaving communities who depend upon them without.

Supply and distribution chains already shocked by covid-19 are shocked again by the escalating violence.

Meanwhile, workers at factories, warehouses, and farms become sick with the mysterious covid-19 disease, which has proven capacities for dormancy and/or re-infection.

Global and national food supply chains are at risk as workers in these spaces become ill.

Some private employers stop reporting infection rates. Data on infections are manipulated by some national, state, and local public authorities. Some would prefer to control information about the threat rather than the threat itself.

While the spectacle of escalating violence and totalitarianism transfix, our vital infrastructures - flawed as they are - are shutting down.....

Change must happen but this trajectory of escalating violence is a descent into madness, especially given it is headed by a mad man.

  2. Time to PANIC? I would say leave Pan alone with the other dead gods.

    “There is nothing that man fears more than the touch of the unknown. He wants to see what is reaching towards him, and to be able to recognize or at least classify it. Man always tends to avoid physical contact with anything strange. In the dark, the fear of an unexpected touch can mount to panic. Even clothes give insufficient security: it is easy to tear them and pierce through to the naked, smooth, defenseless flesh of the victim.”
    ― Elias Canetti, Crowds and Power

    For weeks now I have been kidding people about being bandits and stage coach robbers. Nothing like a mask. And now how handy to hide one's identity and grab a Rolex!

      "But Trump is the odious symptom of a grave disease. One which has inflicted far more damage than any virus. The systemic violence of the American project has always been rooted in sadistic racism. For instance, the demonstrations that formed after the footage of George Floyd’s killing was released were largely non-violent. Despite this, they have been met with the full force of state violence. Police used tear gas, pepper spray, flash grenades, and rubber bullets, not only at protesters but also members of the press. One Black reporter for CNN was arrested while his white colleagues were not despite them being together. There were also many credible reports of agents provocateurs among the protesters. One video shows a white man in a gas mask smashing windows. The US Customs and Border Patrol even flew one of its predator drones around Minneapolis amidst the protests. Like the tanks used at Standing Rock, this is an ominous sign that America’s war machine, that has made life a misery for millions abroad, is being turned inward.

      There were no such police responses to the anti-lockdown protests which were composed mostly of white people. On the contrary, multiple videos show cops gently dealing with unruly white protesters despite many of them wielding assault rifles. It is a textbook example of structural racism at work. Given the armed nature of these demonstrations, one would guess that had there been a forceful approach by the police they would have been far more destruction than the “I Can’t Breathe” protests in Minneapolis and other US cities.

      Trump’s blatant racism and belligerence are not anomalies to American culture. And those tempted to say “this is not us,” yet again, should pause before doing so. "

    2. After now four years of not very original attempts to condemn President Trump by persons without much in the way of accomplishment, I am surprised when someone like yourself sets out again on that boring and repetitious path. It is unlikely you will ever be even rich or marry a beautiful woman or successful man. You are the classic complainer. Always looking for someone to tear down with your spite. When lives were being handed out you were passed over. Sorry. But it is not too late for you. Stop spending all your time slandering others and do something productive.

  6. In Minneapolis, local law enforcement took aim at Linda Tirado, a photojournalist, and shot her eye out as she tried to cover protests over the police killing of George Floyd; they later subjected a black journalist from CNN to wrongful arrest. In Louisville, TV reporter Kaitlin Rust and her crew were targeted by local cops who peppered them with non-lethal bullets during a live broadcast.

    In just four days, according to a count by the investigative news outlet Bellingcat, US police attacked journalists over a hundred times.

    The police violence against a free press spurred a response Monday from leading journalism organizations, and a reminder for law enforcement: “These cities belong to all of us.”

    “You must persuade your colleagues, commanders and chiefs, and the mayors and governors who direct them, to halt the deliberate and devastating targeting of journalists in the field,” reads a June 1 open letter to police endorsed by groups such as the Society of Professional Journalists, Reporters Without Borders, the Committee to Protect Journalists, and the National Press Club.

      Family-Ordered Autopsy: George Floyd Died of Asphyxiation

      An autopsy commissioned for George Floyd’s family found that Floyd died of asphyxiation due to neck and back compression when a Minneapolis police officer kneeled on his neck for several minutes and ignored his cries of distress, the Floyd family’s attorneys said Monday. The autopsy by a doctor who also examined Eric Garner’s body found the compression cut off blood to Floyd’s brain, and weight on his back made it hard to breathe.

    Why are there so many fires around nuclear sites? It is because the area is saturated with extremely pyrophoric radionuclides. This recent fire at Hanford went on to burn 9000 acres.

    Pyrophorics can ignite spontaneously. They burn white hot, like the thorium, in the old mantle lanterns. Radionuclides are by far and above, the strongest pyrophorics known to man. They include most classes of radionuclides: actinides like thorium, uranium, transuranics like plutonium, alkali metals like cesium 137. They are highly reactive, in trace amounts. No media attention about it  at all, except in episodic incindents like WIPP and the plutonium fires ar Rocky Flats. No mention of pyrophorics at Santa Susana or INL.
    Nasty wildfires are common in moist industrial areas now. Especially in nuclear countries. In populated areas on the coasts of Australia, where people in cars, burn masses of hyrocabons, with uranium, radium and thorium traces in them.  They also mine and export large amounts of Uranium in Australia. There are chemical factories, petroleum on the coast of Australia Refineries that create natural radioclide waste with, high concentrations of heavy metals and the natural radionuclides thorium, uranium, radium.
    In the French Riviera and Greece. California. Scandanavia. China. Chernobyl. Japan. Wildfires that are serious threats to populations.
    There is also a great amount of uranium residue, in the environment from fracking.
    There are fires around  reactors and other nuclear facilities.  There was a major fire in the Ukraine, by a hi-level nuclear waste-containment facility.

    There was a fire, at an Idaho low-level nuclear waste facility,  not   associated with INL.

    That facility was recently closed down.  There was a similar fire  in an eastern Washington low level nuclear waste processing facility, that closed it down.
    You do not hear much about radionuclide-pyrophoriocity and fires or wildfires.
    Reactors emit pyrophoric radionuclides in  water starved deserts like Palos verdes in arizona.
    There is  uranium mining, nuclear fuel production depleted uranium and isotope production, from nuclear waste. Massive flintlocks for drought and climate change related, wildfires.

    Some of the recent, worst,  wildfires are common around nuclear reservations in Russia, siberia and the USA. The wildfires in those areas, put large amounts of radionuclides into the air .

  10. The ACLU of Connecticut is suing state police for fabricating retaliatory criminal charges against a protester after troopers were recorded discussing how to trump up charges against him. In what seems like an unlikely stroke of cosmic karma, the recording came about after a camera belonging to the protester, Michael Picard, was illegally seized by a trooper who didn’t know that it was recording and carried it back to his patrol car, where it then captured the troopers’ plotting.

    “Let’s give him something,” one trooper declared. Another suggested, “we can hit him with creating a public disturbance.” “Gotta cover our ass,” remarked a third.

    ACLU affiliates around the country have done a lot of cases defending the right to record in public places, but this case is different. The cops knowing took his phone and was in their possession when they criminally conspired against him.

  13. Based on the above comments alone I would hazard a guess that our world is not perfect, and even the most casual glance at a history book reveals that it has been that way as long as written history has been around. So, it does not seem likely that any amount of protesting will change that fact. In the meantime the Uyghurs in China are having a really hard time and would happily exchange places with even the most miserable Americans. Now I would support a national protest of how the Uyghurs are being treated. At 28, the perfect age for organ donation, they are selected out of concentrations camps to supply organs for Middle Eastern Muslims of means. I guess these Chinese Muslims meet hilal standards. Another suggestion would be for the dissatisfied to exchange places with Hong Kong people.

      'I Survived The Chernobyl Disaster As A 3-Year-Old In The Ukraine'
      "So many blood vessels had popped that my eyes were completely red."
      MAY 20, 2019
      Chernobyl disaster survivor
      JANINA SCARLET
      “Don’t touch her, she’s contagious.”

      “Are you radioactive?”

      “Do you glow in the dark?”

      When the teasing first began, I’d just walk away and cry. As if being 12 years old wasn’t hard enough, I was the new student in school in Brooklyn, New York. It was 1995, and I was from the Ukraine, which at that point still brought to mind just one thing: Chernobyl.


      The Chernobyl nuclear power plant exploded on April 26, 1986.
      Scarlet remembers feelings of anxiety and fear around the time of the Chernobyl disaster.
      JANINA SCARLET
      It happened only 180 miles from my hometown, Vinnitsia, and just a few months short of my 3rd birthday.

      I don’t remember much about the event itself, but I recall heightened feelings of confusion around the time of the explosion, which transformed into a flurry of worries once we finally found out what had actually happened nearly two weeks later.

      It was only after other countries started realizing something was wrong that our government notified us of the situation and recommended iodine treatments as a way to counter the potential health complications of Chernobyl's radioactive iodine emissions.

      But by that point, we'd been exposed to the radiation for weeks, simply from going outside, drinking the water, and eating raw fruit—all of which were poisoned.

      About six months later, people began to get sick. I was one of those people.

      My immune system was severely compromised—a simple cold could land me in the hospital.
      When the weather would change, I'd get nose bleeds that wouldn’t clot and overwhelming migraines that were followed by seizures—all of which also warranted trips to the hospital.

      Scarlet suffered seizures and migraines in the aftermath of the Chernobyl disaster. Suffered them the rest of her life.
      JANINA SCARLET
      Although my memory of that time is incomplete, I recall being in the hospital, wondering if I was going to survive to adulthood.

      Just a few years after the Chernobyl disaster, a lot of young people started getting cancer and dying shortly after. My best friend’s mom was one of these people—she was diagnosed with cancer at 35 and passed shortly after. I remember being terrified: afraid of getting sick, afraid of getting a migraine that would lead to a seizure, and afraid of what would happen to me.

      One day in elementary school, I was sent home because of a migraine. My parents couldn’t pick me up, and I only lived two blocks away, so I just walked. By the time I got to my front door I felt like I could barely move, and I was having trouble seeing.

      After several attempts to put the key in the door, I entered and looked in the mirror to see that so many blood vessels had popped that my eyes were completely red. I was frightened, hopeless, and in so much pain that I just collapsed.

      When I was 12 years old,

  14. An utopia would be worse than things as they are now. I will show that below.

    Alexander the Great and Caesar were born to be great military leaders. So were Patton and Belisarius. A world without wars would be like a world without art for Michelangelo and Raphael. Or without music for Beethoven. For Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Tolstoy peace was the goal.

    Henry Ford types would be opposed to the Vladimir Lenin types. Criminal would be at odds with those liking law and order.

    Actually in no time at all the various desires opposing each other would reduce the world to one worse than the present one. Making the world better means making it more the way I want it but probably not the way you want it.

    It is fairly easy to grasp the kind of world that most people here want and would happily impose with violence if necessary on those who have different ideas.

    No, utopias are incoherent in their very essence and could never occur.

      Published by Statista Research Department, Jun 5, 2020
      Sadly, the trend of fatal police shootings in the United States seems to only be increasing, with a total 429 civilians having been shot, 88 of whom were Black, as of June 4, 2020. In 2018, there were 996 fatal police shootings, and in 2019 this figure increased to 1,004. Additionally, the rate of fatal police shootings among Black Americans was much higher than that for any other ethnicity, standing at 30 fatal shootings per million of the population as of June 2020.

      The Whack ‘Em and Stack ‘Em Mentality of American Cops
      by JEFFREY ST. CLAIR - ALEXANDER COCKBURN FacebookTwitterRedditEmail
      Police work continues to be a relatively safe occupation. In the 1970s, an average of 220 officers died each year. In the 1980s, 185 officers were killed on average, with the average number dropping to 155 in the 1990s. The number of police deaths continues to decline, year by year. According to the publication Officer Down, there were only 95 “duty related” officer deaths in 2013. Forty-two of these fatalities were vehicle related. Another 14 deaths resulted from heart attacks while on the clock. Only 27 cops died from gunfire last year and several of those were shot by other cops.

      Craig Floyd, chairman of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, contends that “law enforcement remains the most dangerous occupation in America today, and those who serve and make the ultimate sacrifice are true portraits in courage.”

      This is nonsense. Compared to the daily perils of being a retail clerk in a 7-Eleven or toiling on a construction site, let alone working on a trawler in the Gulf of Alaska, logging in the Pacific Northwest or working in a deep mine, policing is a fairly invulnerable trade.

      But as vividly recounted by James Bovard in a piece for CounterPunch this week, it has probably never been riskier to be pulled over by a cop on one of America’s roads. Bovard writes:

      “Killings by police are not a negligible proportion of the nation’s firearms death toll. Shootings by police accounted for almost 10 percent of the homicides in Los Angeles County in 2010, according to the Los Angeles Times.

      Delete
  15. “Jim Fisher, a former FBI agent and criminal law professor, compiled a database of police shootings and estimated that in the United States in 2011 police shot more than 1,100 people, killing 607.”

    The public apprehension that cops are often borderline psychotic, hair-trigger-ready to open fire on the slightest pretext, virtually immune from serious sanction, is growing apace, fueled by such incidents as the dog slaughter on an interstate in Tennessee. CNN featured grainy film of the episode taken from one of the police cruisers.

    James Smoak plus wife Pamela and son Brandon were traveling from Nashville along Interstate 40 to their Saluda, NC, home on New Year’s Day when they noticed a trooper following them. In Cookeville, about 90 miles east of Nashville, the Smoaks were pulled over by the trooper and three local police cars. The cops ordered them out of the car, made them kneel and then handcuffed them.

    At this point the Smoaks family implored the police to shut the doors of their car so the two family dogs couldn’t jump out. The cops did nothing. Out hopped Patton the bulldog. A cop promptly raised his shotgun and blew its head off, amid the horrified screams of the Smoaks family.

    Of course, the cops later said Patton was acting in a threatening manner and that the uniformed shot-gunner “took the only action he could to protect himself and gain control of the situation,” but the film seems to show Patton wagging his tail the moment before he was blown away.

    Why were the Smoaks stopped by the four-car posse? Mr. Smoaks had left his wallet on the roof of his car at the filling station, and someone phoned in a report that he’d seen the wallet fly off of a car and fall onto the highway with money spilling out. Well, Mr. Smoaks won’t make that silly mistake again.

    Scroll through some Middle America websites and you’ll find much fury about what happened to Patton, as an episode ripely indicative of how cops carry on these days. Here’s “Police State in Progress,” by Dorothy Anne Seese writing in the sparky Sierra Times. The Times bills itself as “An Internet Publication for Real Americans.”

    After relating the death of Patton, Seese brought up other recent police rampages:

    “A couple of months ago, a woman was shot to death in her car at a drive-through Walgreens pharmacy for trying to get Soma by a forged prescription. The officer who shot the woman—who had a 14-month old baby with her in the car—claimed self-defense because the woman was trying to run over him. However, the medical examiner found she had been shot from an angle to the left and rear of her position in the driver’s seat. Self defense? The officer is under investigation for second-degree murder and has been fired from the Chandler police department. However, a child is motherless, a man has been deprived of his wife and companion, the mother of his child, because his wife tried to get a drug with a phony prescription. Florida Governor Jeb Bush’s daughter did the same thing and got a slap on the wrist. It seems the law now considers everyone guilty until proven innocent, with people in high places excepted. The number of horror stories increases daily in Amerika.”

    FASCIST ESSAY WITH MULTIPLE LIES AND MISREPRESENTATIONS .  HE IS CALLING FOR MARTIAL LAW AND MASS MURDER OF AMERICAN CITIZENS

    Tom Cotton: Send In the Troops
    The nation must restore order. The military stands ready.

    Editors’ Note, June 5, 2020:

    After publication, this essay met strong criticism from many readers (and many Times colleagues), prompting editors to review the piece and the editing process. Based on that review, we have concluded that the essay fell short of our standards and should not have been published.

    EVERYTHING HE WROTE IS MISINFORMATION AND LIES OUT OF CONTEXT . THE NATIONAL GUARD OR MILITARY TROOPS HAVE NEVER BEEN CALLED OUT ON THE USA. THE INSURRECTION ACT WAS A TREACHEAROUS GROTESQUE RACIST PROSLAVERY MEASURE DIRECTED AT BLACK PEOPLE

    ReplyDelete
  19. The basic arguments advanced by Senator Cotton — however objectionable people may find them — represent a newsworthy part of the current debate. But given the life-and-death importance of the topic, the senator’s influential position and the gravity of the steps he advocates, the essay should have undergone the highest level of scrutiny. Instead, the editing process was rushed and flawed, and senior editors were not sufficiently involved. While Senator Cotton and his staff cooperated fully in our editing process, the Op-Ed should have been subject to further substantial revisions — as is frequently the case with such essays — or rejected.

    For example, the published piece presents as facts assertions about the role of “cadres of left-wing radicals like antifa”; in fact, those allegations have not been substantiated and have been widely questioned. Editors should have sought further corroboration of those assertions, or removed them from the piece. The assertion that police officers “bore the brunt” of the violence is an overstatement that should have been challenged. The essay also includes a reference to a “constitutional duty” that was intended as a paraphrase; it should not have been rendered as a quotation.

    Beyond those factual questions, the tone of the essay in places is needlessly harsh and falls short of the thoughtful approach that advances useful debate. Editors should have offered suggestions to address those problems. The headline — which was written by The Times, not Senator Cotton — was incendiary and should not have been used.

    Finally, we failed to offer appropriate additional context — either in the text or the presentation — that could have helped readers place Senator Cotton’s views within a larger framework of debate.

    This week, rioters have plunged many American cities into anarchy, recalling the widespread violence of the 1960s.

    PEACEFUL PROTESTS AND FASCIST LIES FROM THE NYT WHO SUPPORTED THE PREEMPTIVE INVASION OF IRAQ AND WMD LIES
    2 MILLION IRAQIS DEAD SO FAR

    New York City suffered the worst of the riots Monday night, as Mayor Bill de Blasio stood by while Midtown Manhattan descended into lawlessness. Bands of looters roved the streets, smashing and emptying hundreds of businesses. Some even drove exotic cars; the riots were carnivals for the thrill-seeking rich as well as other criminal elements.

    MANY OF THE LOOTERS WERE RIGHTWING PROVOCATIERS AND UNDERCOVER POLICE

    Outnumbered police officers, encumbered by feckless politicians, bore the brunt of the violence. In New York State, rioters ran over officers with cars on at least three occasions

    THIS PATHOLOGICAL  LIAR  PUTS IT BACKWARDS COPS AND WHITES HAVE SMASHED INTO GROUPS OF PEACEFUL DEMONSTRATORS WITH SUVS CARS AND RIGS

    Some elites have excused this orgy of violence in the spirit of radical chic

    calling it an understandable response to the wrongful death of George Floyd. Those excuses are built on a revolting moral equivalence of rioters and looters to peaceful, law-abiding protesters. A majority who seek to protest peacefully shouldn’t be confused with bands of miscreants.

  21. But the rioting has nothing to do with George Floyd, whose bereaved relatives have condemned violence. On the contrary, nihilist criminals are simply out for loot and the thrill of destruction, with cadres of left-wing radicals like antifa infiltrating protest marches to exploit Floyd’s death for their own anarchic purposes.

    NIHILIST CRIMINALS, MEANING COTTON AND TRUMP HIMSELF WHO ARE FASCIST PSYCHOPATHS THAT HAVE ENCOURAGED MASS SHOOTINGS AND POLICE MURDERING CITIZENS MORE THAN A THOUSAND A YEAR

    THERE IS NO ANTIFA PATHOLOGICAL LIARS LIKE THEIR NAZI FORBEARERS

    These rioters, if not subdued, not only will destroy the livelihoods of law-abiding citizens but will also take more innocent lives. Many poor communities that still bear scars from past upheavals will be set back still further.

    One thing above all else will restore order to our streets: an overwhelming show of force to disperse, detain and ultimately deter lawbreakers.


    AND SHOOT AND DESTROY THOUSANDS OF INNOCENTS EVEN CHILDREN

    But local law enforcement in some cities desperately needs backup, while delusional politicians in other cities refuse to do what’s necessary to uphold the rule of law.

    The pace of looting and disorder may
    fluctuate from night to night,


    LOOTING BY RIGHTWING PROVOCATIERS AND UNDERCOVER COPS

    but it’s past time to support local law enforcement with federal authority. Some governors have mobilized the National Guard, yet others refuse, and in some cases the rioters still outnumber the police and Guard combined. In these circumstances, the Insurrection Act

    THE CREEP IS NON DEMOCRATIC AND ADVOCATES TREASONOUS USERPY AND MURDEROUSLY  TURNING TROOPS ON HIS OWN PEOPLE


    authorizes the president to employ the military “or any other means” in “cases of insurrection, or obstruction to the laws.”

    This venerable law, nearly as old as our republic itself, doesn’t amount to “martial law” or the end of democracy, as some excitable critics, ignorant of both the law and our history, have comically suggested. In fact, the federal government has a constitutional duty to the states to “protect each of them from domestic violence.”

    Throughout our history, presidents have exercised this authority on dozens of occasions to protect law-abiding citizens from disorder. Nor does it violate the Posse Comitatus Act, which constrains the military’s role in law enforcement but expressly excepts statutes such as the Insurrection Act.


    JUST OUT AND OUT LIES FROM A PATHOLOGICAL LIAR AND PSYCHOPATH WHO HAS NO VALUE FOR HUMAN LIFE. IT CERTAINLY  DOES  VIOLATE  THE POSSE COMITATUS ACT. THE INSURECTION ACT WAS DIRECTED AT SLAVES AND HAS BEEN NULLIFIED

  22. After thousands of whites rioted in Oxford, Miss., in 1962 to prevent integration of the University of Mississippi, President John Kennedy sent U.S. troops to quell the violence.

    ALL LIES AND INFLAMMOTORY WHITE SUPREMACIST MISINFORMATION AND PROPAGANDA

    For instance, during the 1950s and 1960s, Presidents Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson called out the military to disperse mobs that prevented school desegregation or threatened innocent lives and property. This happened in my own state. Gov. Orval Faubus, a racist Democrat, mobilized our National Guard in 1957 to obstruct desegregation at Little Rock Central High School. President Eisenhower federalized the Guard and called in the 101st Airborne in response. The failure to do so, he said, “would be tantamount to acquiescence in anarchy.”

    MORE DISTROTION AND MISREPRESENTATION

    More recently, President George H.W. Bush ordered the Army’s Seventh Infantry and 1,500 Marines to protect Los Angeles during race riots in 1992. He acknowledged his disgust at Rodney King’s treatment — “what I saw made me sick” — but he knew deadly rioting would only multiply the victims, of all races and from all walks of life.


    BUSH THE WAR CRIMINAL


    Not surprisingly, public opinion is on the side of law enforcement and law and order, not insurrectionists. According to a recent poll, 58 percent of registered voters, including nearly half of Democrats and 37 percent of African-Americans, would support cities’ calling in the military to “address protests and demonstrations” that are in “response to the death of George Floyd.” That opinion may not appear often in chic salons, but widespread support for it is fact nonetheless.

    LIES AND PROPAGANDA

    The American people aren’t blind to injustices in our society, but they know that the most basic responsibility of government is to maintain public order and safety. In normal times, local law enforcement can uphold public order. But in rare moments, like ours today, more is needed, even if many politicians prefer to wring their hands while the country burns.

    Why is tear gas banned in war but not from peaceful protests?

    In the midst of national protests against racism and police brutality, President Donald Trump on Monday walked a short distance from the White House to St. John’s Church. The visit was for a photo op in which Trump held up a bible as though it were a ticket he had just plucked from a raffle drum. In order for the president to get to the church, however, the protesters in his path first had to be dealt with; Attorney General William Barr reportedly ordered police to disperse them. Law enforcement officers rushed into the protest, striking demonstrators and press alike and firing smoke canisters and tear gas at the crowd.

    Scenes from the protests across the country in the past few days look almost like they were ripped from a dystopian movie. Police marched through a residential neighborhood in Minneapolis dressed as though they were on patrol in Fallujah circa 2004. Military helicopters hovered just above protestors in Washington, D.C., National Guard troops have been deployed in many American cities. Among all of the symbols of a militarized response to the protests sparked when a black man named George Floyd died after a police officer knelt on his neck for several minutes, one of the most potent is tear gas, which authorities have been firing at demonstrators in cities from Philadelphia to Seattle. Unlike the tactical gear and military vehicles US police often employ, tear gas isn’t even allowed on actual battlefields.

    The tear gas that police fired ahead of Trump’s visit to St. John’s as well as other similar chemicals fall within a substantial exception to the global prohibition against chemical weapons enshrined in the Chemical Weapons Convention. Just as it’s not legal to shell an opposing army with sarin or mustard gas, it’s also illegal to fire off commonly used riot control agents such as chloroacetophenone (CN) and chlorobenzylidenemalononitrile (CS) in war. Against protestors in one’s own country, however? Perfectly legal. Law enforcement use of so-called riot control agents isn’t prohibited by the treaty.

    President Donald Trump came under fire Tuesday morning after tweeting out a conspiracy theory charging that 75-year-old Martin Gugino, who was assaulted by Buffalo police last week, resulted in his continued hospitalization, was a member of an ill-defined left-wing group and suggested he faked his injuries.

    "Buffalo protester shoved by Police could be an ANTIFA provocateur," the president tweeted, adding that Gugino—who immediately began bleeding from his ear after being violently shoved by officers Aaron Torgalski and Robert McCabe—"fell harder than was pushed."


    "Wow, Donald Trump in effect stomps on a 75-year-old peace activist who was pushed by police, fell over backward to the ground, and started bleeding from the head," tweeted journalist Steve Greenhouse in reply. "Wow, what an amazingly un-compassionate president we have."

    Gugino remains in the hospital in serious but stable condition.

    "No one should be assaulted by the police in this way," Intercept journalist Jeremy Scahill said on Twitter. "But for the record, this 75-year-old is a pacifist Catholic Worker who dedicated his life to nonviolence, serving the poor, living the Sermon on the Mount, and fighting for justice in the spirit of Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin."

    The Trump administration is taking the first steps toward allowing international development funds to be spent on nuclear projects, working to lift a longtime prohibition on how the anti-poverty funds can be spent. 

    The Wednesday proposal from the Development Finance Corporation (DFC) would make it perhaps the only government development agency in the world to use its funds to back nuclear projects. 

    The DFC argues that nuclear power will provide carbon-free electricity for developing nations seeing a growing demand for power.

      "At the anti-World Trade Organization “Battle of Seattle” in 1999, gangs of young, masked vandals have descended on international protests, causing divisions between protestors and police. These are broadly known as the Black Block, in reference to their dress code. Their leaderless tactics and choice of attire lump them in with Antifa. But time after time, evidence exposes their followers as agents provocateur.

      In 2007, Heiligendamm, Rostock, Germany, hosted the Group of Eight (G8) meeting. Around 80,000 demonstrators protested that month, only to be met with then-unprecedented state-violence: “pre-crime” raids, arrests, kettling, and eventual prohibition. After the Black Block caused trouble, the Federal Constitutional Court banned the demonstrations. Welt reports: “police have admitted the use of black-clad civilian officers during the summit protests.” Witnesses said that the undercover cop “incited to collect stones from the gravel bed of the Molli Railway.” Another said: “he hurled a stone at the fence and called: ‘Get on the cops!’”. Statewatch countedat least five black-clad provocateurs, some of whom were questioned by peaceful protestors about their agendas and backgrounds, to which they replied in formal German and refused to answer questions.

      Also in 2007, the political leaders of the US, Mexico, and Canada met in the latter country in Montebello, near Ottawa, to discuss the Security and Prosperity Partnership 2005. Two thousand people gathered at the chateau to protest. Despite swearing that they were not provocateurs (“[a]t no time did the police of the Sûreté du Québec act as instigators or commit criminal acts”), the Quebec provincial police acknowledged that they had planted at least three, black-clad, masked, undercover officers among the protestors. Their police-issued boots gave them away. One of the coppers was seen carrying a rock. Videographer, Paul Manly, caught one of the undercover cops slapping the face of a riot squad officer.

      In 2010, Vancouver hosted the Winter Olympic Games. The Olympic Resistance Network was there to protest. Constable Lindsey Houghton of the Vancouver Police described: “people dressed in all black who were encouraging the vandalism.” Harsha Walia described what activists believed was a provocateur: “He was pushing forward and forcing people into the police"

  29. WHITE SUPREMACIST COPS AND OTHER COPS HATE AMERICANS . ESPECIALLY BLACK AMERICANS THAT KNEEL IN PROTEST. THEY HATE AMERICANS. THEY HATE AMERICANS THAT EXERCISE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO PROTEST PEACEFULLY. THEIR OUTLET AND ANSWER TO AMERICAN CITIZENS IS TO KNEEL ON THEIR NECKS WITH HANDCUFFS ON THEM AND STRANGLE THEM TO DEATH OR SHOOT THEM.
    KNEELING ON THEIR NECKS FOR 8 TO TEN MINUTES IS THEIR PREFERED METHOD OF MURDER BECAUSE IT INVOLVES THE MOST TORTURE. TORTURE AND BRUTALITY IS THE PREFERRED METHOD OF THE AMERICAN EMPIRE AND ELITE. IT IS THE PREFERRED METHOD OF FASCIST RACISTS AND CORRUPT BRUTAL PSYCOPATHS

    FBI: The gunman, an Air Force sergeant, and an accomplice went to Oakland "to take advantage” of BLM protests at the courthouse and open fire on officers. The pair were not associated with the protests.

    The gun used in the shooting of federal security officers was an AR-15 style rifle, US attorney says. “They came to Oakland to kill cops,” FBI special agent says.

    The gunman is a Military Police officer. A cop. He killed other cops to start a race war.
